Surveying the Decline of Elephants in Africa

The Great Elephant Census, an aerial survey of 18 African countries conducted by Botswana-based nonprofit Elephants Without Borders to tally elephant populations, has created a data visualization tool that allows users to examine the decline of elephant populations by country, compare elephant population trends over time in different regions, and generate maps and datasets of country-level data. The survey found that the elephant population is declining by 27,000 per year, largely due to poaching, and has declined 30 percent over the past 7 years.
